Brazil is not only the largest country in South America, but also offers an incredible diversity, which is bound to impress even the most distinguished and seasoned traveller. With the Star Alliance Brazil Airpass, exploring the exciting attractions and beauty of Brazil is now even easier.

The Brazil Airpass allows travel across the entire domestic network of more than 45 destinations served by TAM Airlines. The routing can be freely selected and needs to cover between four and nine flight coupons. Each city may be visited once, although connecting flights through the same airports are permitted. The fare varies according to the number of coupons purchased and available booking class, and ranges from US$ 133 to US$ 212 per coupon (excluding fees, taxes and surcharges).

“The Star Alliance Brazil Airpass is a further example of the customer benefits which only an airline alliance can provide. By working with our member carrier TAM Airlines, we are now in a position to provide a great value for money fare product to all customers travelling on Star Alliance member carrier flights to Brazil and wishing to explore the diverse attractions this fascinating country has to offer,” said Christopher Korenke, Vice President Commercial, Star Alliance.

The Brazil Airpass can be purchased by all non-Brazilian residents, in conjunction with an international ticket on any Star Alliance member carrier to Brazil, or in addition to a Star Alliance Round-the-World ticket, with a routing which includes a destination in Brazil.

In order to plan a trip using the Brazil Airpass, a special fare calculator is available on the Star Alliance website. Once an itinerary has been planned, passengers can email it directly to a call centre, or print the desired journey and request the booking, pricing and ticketing via any travel agent or any Star Alliance member carrier.

The launch of the Brazil Airpass follows the recent joining of Brazilian airline TAM, which has allowed Star Alliance to increase its presence in South America. In addition to TAM, Star Alliance member carriers Air Canada, Air China, Continental Airlines, Lufthansa, South African Airways, SWISS, TAP, Turkish Airlines, United and US Airways all provide flights to Brazil.

With the Brazil Airpass, Star Alliance now offers a total of 14 different fare products, ranging from the popular Round-the-World fare to circle fares and regional airpasses.
